The painting was made by Paul Gauguin (1848–1903). He was one of the most influential post-impressionist artists. Gauguin's experimental use of color and stark contrasts spearheaded the synthetism movement, which regarded form and color as equally important. Most of his paintings depict people or landscapes from French Polynesia since he spent many years in that region in search of inspiration. His artistic experiments influenced many avant-garde movements in the early 20th century as well as modern artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
The accompanying print shows 'Tehamana Has Many Parents' painted in 1893. In this portrait we see a young Tahitian woman with flowers in her hair. The painting is a portrait of Paul Gauguin's wife, Teha'amana, during his first visit to Tahiti in 1891-1893. She is dressed in a white dress decorated with blue stripes. This is the so-called missionary dress. The Christian Europeans who colonised Polynesia were disturbed by the ubiquitous and immodest nudity of the Tahitian women, so they introduced the dress, sewn from cheap cotton, thus encouraging the covering of naked bodies. The painting is part of the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
